Abstract

This research was funded for a period of six months (October 2005 – March 2006) in light of the report entitled Mind the Gap: A sexual health needs assessment of young people aged 12 – 21 within Hull (Duncalf, 2005). Although this report raised many issues for further research a funding bid was placed with Hull Teenage Pregnancy Unit to focus on specific research with boys and young men. The aims and objectives of this research were: 1. To provide a report in which the participants’ information was central. 2. To explore the perceptions, ideals and needs of boys and young men regarding sexual health, relationships, personally and with professionals, and sex. 3. To explore the information and services available for boys and young men. 4. To provide appropriate and achievable recommendations to develop sexual health services.
